Help maintain Wiltshire’s southern nature reserves, improve our unique habitats and get in shape whilst meeting other likeminded volunteers!

Having recognised the serious loss of insect abundance and diversity over the past few decades, as part of the Lottery funded ‘Action for Insects Project’, we are looking for volunteers to help our team carry out vital conservation work for insects across a range of different habitats. This will enable us to enhance habitat for insects as part of a nature recovery network of sites across the county. Most of our work happens throughout the working week and only occasionally at the weekends.

What will I be doing?

We would never ask anyone to do more than they feel capable of doing. Examples of the kind of work we will be doing include:

  • Scrub management – cutting and tree popping
  • Tackling invasive species
  • Coppicing

Why volunteer?

Volunteering with the conservation and land management team provides a unique opportunity to conserve some of the rarest and most threatened habitats in the UK:

  • Help protect Wiltshire’s nature reserves
  • Pick up new skills
  • Meet new people
  • Work in a team
  • Keep fit!
